Nicki Minaj’s third studio album, “The Pinkprint”, was released on December 15, 2014. Minaj wanted to depart from the dance-pop elements from her second studio album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” (2012), and instead wanted to make a follow-up record influenced by her traditional hip-hop beginnings. She collaborated with a variety of producers to achieve her desired sound.
Upon the release, the album received positive reviews from music critics, many of which called it her strongest album to date. “The Pinkprint” has been supported by the singles “Pills n Potions,” “Anaconda,” “Only,” and “Bed of Lies”. “Anaconda” peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and has become Minaj’s highest-charting single to date in the United States. The new album features guest appearances by Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Jeremih, Meek Mill, and Skylar Grey.
Minaj is set to support the album with a European tour, which will start on March 16 in Stockhol, Sweden, and will stop off in Ireland, the United Kingdom, Norway, Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, and end on April 12 in Glasgow. Trey Songz will be the opening act.
